I bought my wife an Asus Eee PC 1015PEM in Funan Mall in Singapore. It cost S$ 399. I got it for S$ 390 with a 10 in 1 free from the supplier. It’s a dual core Atom 550 processor. I compared it to R101D which runs on ATOM 450 single processor. According to asus 23% of additional performance comparing to a Single core.

I think this Asus Eee PC got a lot of attention from me. I decided to but this since the design is a 10.3 x 7.1 x 1.4-inch Eee PC 1015PEM has the slim, tapered look of the other models in theSeashell series, which we still find elegant even though it's familiar. It isn't quite as thin or light as the Eee PC 1018P, which shares some of its other design elements. Instead of an aluminum body, the 1015PEM sports a matte plastic chassis that's soft to the touch. It picks up some fingerprints, but not too many. We like that the color on the lid--which comes in black, blue, red, and white--also extends to the palm rest. The glossy black bezel surrounding the display merges into the upper deck, where the reflective material surrounds matte, chiclet-style keys.
The bottom of the 1015PEM is slightly textured, so it won't so slip from your hand as you carry the netbook around. Once again, ASUS manages to get the battery nearly flush with the system, creating a smooth line that tapers from the back to the front.
I converted S$390 into peso and it would cost me aroung Php13K minus the GST of S$25 or 900 so I still got it for Php12K. Not bad for a great Notebook. Villman doesn’t have this same specs. And all the notebook sold here in the Philippines cost Php16K and up.
